This seminar examines the issue of food justice in Ithaca and surrounding areas and explores innovative approaches for bringing about social equity and justice in relation to food availability, access and sustainability for those on a fixed or low income.  Working in concert with community stake holders and drawing on theoretical and historical scholarship , students will work with local farmers, non profits and community activists to learn about area organizations and experiments that have sought to make interventions. The seminar will also offer students the opportunity to conduct hands-on research in order to propose workable approaches to solving food justice issues and problems.  Our central purpose will be to understand the conditions under which attempts to move from critique to sustainable solutions succeed and fail and to look at efforts to achieve sustainable development in the context of racism and social inequality with a focus on contemporary and historical efforts to build lasting institutions or movements.
